Wolff Electronic Design can provide consulting as well as product development services. We distinguish consulting from product development primarily by who does the implementation work. If we do the implementation, the project is a product development project; if you do the implementation, the project is a consulting project.
For example, many customers have come to us to help architect their custom USB peripherals. By utilizing our expertise to advise them on architecture up front and provide on-demand consulting for answering questions and helping diagnose and fix problems along the way, we get them up the learning curve much faster with much lower risk, while enabling their internal resources to actually implement the design.
Activities that could be included in a consulting project:
- Design studies
- System architecture design input
- Technology investigation
- Design Reviews
- On-demand consulting to answer questions and provide guidance
- Problem analysis
